A fresh, flexible approach to wellness in Canmore

My Story

Lessons in Flexibility, Changes in Direction

I grew up in Southern Ontario along the shores of the Bay of Quinte where I spent as much time as I could outside exploring. As soon as I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Earth Sciences at McMaster University I packed my bags and headed West. For the next 10 years I not only worked outside as a field geoscientist but explored the great outdoors on my personal time throughout northern BC, Alberta and the Yukon Territory.

My passion for exploring brought me to Canmore. While living in Canmore and starting a family I decided to change my career path. I've always enjoyed the company of others on my adventures and helping those that have never really been active that way. So wanting to share the pleasures and joy in having an active lifestyle, I transitioned into health and wellness by becoming a Nationally Certified Pilates Instructor (Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) affiliation) through the Embody School of Pilates in 2017.

I still explore the great outdoors, but now with more zest and joy than before!

My goal is to make wellness accessible and sustainable...
